Brief History

24th Infantry Regiment was organized during the winter of 1861-1862 with men from Charleston and the counties of Marion and Edgefield. In May, 1863, moved to Mississippi. Assigned to General Gist's Brigade, it was engaged at Jackson, then joined the Army of Tennessee. Few surrendered on April 26, 1865[1].

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in  a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded.  However if you are unsure which company your ancestor  was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
